Leak Control in Water Distribution

Almost one quarter of all water supplied in the UK is lost through leakage. Leakage not only wastes water, leaks are costly to repair, contribute to water supply interruptions, traffic disturbances and property damage. With vast pipe distribution networks it is often difficult to locate a leak, requiring a solution which easily and quickly locates leaks in the pipeline.

Leaky Pipes

Dynasonics has developed a clamp-on ultrasonic flow meter – the TFX-Ultra. It provides accurate and repeatable flow measurement readings for full pipe liquid applications in 13mm to 3800mm internal diameter pipes where system shutdown is not feasible. The unit is designed to simply clamp-on to the outside of existing pipe, reducing installation time and material costs. There is no need to shut down the process for installation or maintenance and with no moving parts, there is no mechanical wear – no repair kits or replacement parts are ever needed.

TFX Remote for water leaks


Once installed along the distribution network the TFX-Ultra flow meters can isolate usage by defined regions and then transmit readings to the local monitoring system via wired or wireless means, this ensures an easy detection of leaks- thus tremendously reducing the time between leak detection and trouble-shooting. The cost savings are large; there is less downtime, property or road damage and reductions in water wastage due to leaks.
